The Structure and Application of High-level Safety Goals

Position papers

When the MDEP Steering Technical Committee (STC) members agree on areas in which they believe MDEP can make contributions to enhancing aspects of safety reviews, the STC may publish position papers or other documents in an effort to clarify its position on a particular regulatory matter.

The STC has discussed the issue of high level safety goals and offers its position paper on this matter. The STC Subcommittee provided its input on this subject at the IAEA technical meeting on safety goals that was held in Vienna on 11-15 April 2011.
